A 12-year-old girl has organised a strike after saying she is being ignored by teachers proposing to turn her school into an academy.

Georgia Abbott and about 50 other pupils will protest outside Crown Woods College, in Eltham, next week, claiming their concerns over the school becoming an academy were not taken seriously.

The schoolgirl, who launched a playground petition for her campaign, said she was prepared to accept punishment for the strike if it meant being listened to.
